INDOT Accepting Local Trax Matching Grant Applications Through August 31
The Indiana Department of Transportation reminds Indiana cities, towns, and counties that the agency is accepting applications for the Local Trax matching grant program through August 31.
Local Trax provides at least $125 million in state matching funds for communities interested in pursuing high-priority railroad grade separations, crossing closures, and other safety enhancements at railroad intersections with local roads.
INDOT began accepting project proposals from local agencies on May 1. The application window will stay open until August 31 with the awarding funds expected to be announced in late summer. Local Trax requires local governments to provide only 20 percent of funding for land acquisition and construction with the state providing the other 80 percent.

The goal of Local Trax is to encourage partnership between the state, local governments, private businesses, and railroads to increase safety, improve mobility, and enhance the quality of life for Hoosiers.
Funding authorization for Local Trax was granted in HEA1002-2017, the long-term, sustainable road funding plan passed by the Indiana General Assembly and signed by Governor Holcomb in April 2017.
